David Rockwood

Professor David Rockwood has been selected by the presidentially appointed J. William Fulbright Scholarship Board for a Core Fulbright U.S. Scholar award to Vietnam.  Rockwood will undertake teaching and research at Danang University of Science & Technology in Danang, Vietnam during academic year 2017-18.

Rockwood will collaborate with students and lecturers in the Faculty of Architecture and the Faculty of Civil Engineering. The research will follow up from Rockwood’s Fulbright Specialist award in 2014 that focused on the examination of the existing Vietnamese housing stock, and evolution new techniques for constructing affordable and sustainable housing in the country. This year, Rockwood and his Vietnamese colleagues will design, build, and test wall assemblies for public housing with the goal of lowering cost and decreasing heat transfer.

The Fulbright Program, established by Senator J. William Fulbright in 1946, aims to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. The flagship international educational exchange program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Fulbright alumni have become heads of state, judges, ambassadors, cabinet ministers, CEOs, and university presidents, as well as leading journalists, artists, scientists, and teachers. They include 58 Nobel Laureates, 82 Pulitzer Prize winners, 31 MacArthur Fellows, 16 Presidential Medal of Freedom recipients, and thousands of leaders across the private, public and non-profit sectors.
